Found 21st Aug 2017 on Kimmeridge beach Dorset UK so late jurassic era. The centre line is slightly raised, the edges  clean cut. 59a04da2efb39_Fossilandmeasure.thumb.jpg.29be2c0521c4b30237b6ba530d5402f5.jpg59a04e356a392_Fossilunderside.thumb.jpg.8b8e98b6d2eeff479fa4c7adf1c8f9f0.jpg59a04e12b016e_Fossilsideways.thumb.jpg.b2277b09a9b217e0307cd31e4adf2a83.jpg

Hello, and welcome to the Forum. :)


The rock isn't a fossil in and of itself, but I do see what looks like a small shell fossil near the bottom edge in the second picture. :)

Maybe someone more local will weigh in.

Looks like some shale with a bedding line, could be split if you so desire.

I agree it seems to be a piece of shale, weathered out along joint lines to give the triangular shape.
